    Why was everyone living for Gia’s tedious dead-eyed drama last week, and not for Manila’s trolling that I totally bought into?

    i'd have liked gia and latrice in the bottom, just to give chunky yet klunky a jolt of adrenaline.

    Definitely Latrice, yes.

    I'd rather they did that earlier in the season, if it means they aren't going to pull out a shitshow of a result like AS3.

    I found Valentina at least as one note as Trinity. And her seeming inability to engage well marked her down.

    Although still not worthy of bottom two, in a game that also included Gia, Monet and Latrice.

    valentina had everything prepared beforehand and totally bombed when anything off script was thrown at her. but she was hilarious. well in my eyes.

    now that i've finished the episode (and reminded myself of the cringe-fest that was manilla asking valentina to not eliminate her if she's ever in the bottom) i'm actually swapping them in ranks and putting valentina as my favourite to win.

    say what you want about her but there's an integrity to her and you just gotta love someone who's always up for a pose. have you seen her shoulder first during deliberations? insane, creepy and amazing all at once.

    Ugh it really was Latrice as herself, wasn’t it?
    And to some extent Monique as herself too

    I wonder whether Latrice did some more 'in character' things but they only showed the moments where she was getting annoyed at Gia. It felt like she had very little screen time during the game.

    Oh, I just watched Phoenix's video. Maybe not.

    It did appear it was just Latrice being Latrice from that video, granted, but you also have to wonder at what point was that done- if it was after the Game itself, she'd probably given up by that point (which admittedly, is not acceptable, but still...)

    I never really understand people who do US-only Snatch Gamers. It's a show with such an international following that it doesn't make any sense to me...

    It's a shame that can reaction dictates so much how queens behave on the show. I, for one, would have got rid of Valentina had I been ikn that position.

    The thing is that despite all the drama, Manila must be one of the least likely queens to throw someone under the bus. I admit she did have me guessing for a while though.

    I didn’t think she expected Valentina to snap right back at her though, THAT’S drama

    Despite what Trinity said to Manila, I think at least SHE really does believe in beating the best, and saving Gia would’ve been a real injustice

    I think you're overestimating how much most Americans give a shit about anything outside of America... or even are aware of it. I know these Queens come to the UK and other places, but I can't see them really thinking 'oh I wonder if Cwej in Wembley will know this person'.

    Extremely fair point, but surely the more intelligent queens who are as far a long the road as someone who enters AS4 as one of the favourites should have a better idea than most...

    How are they supposed to know who is and isn’t known internationally though? You’d have to limit yourself to real superstars.

    I think I’d know quite well that Mary Berry isn’t going to play to a US audience, no?

    Not really a valid comparison since American media still dominates globally.

    I don’t know why you’re all arguing, haven’t we seen plenty of world famous snatch games that have been shit, and some I'd never heard of being amazing
